It attaches quickly and easily to the Excelsior Mini Lathe and increases the distance between centers from 17-3/4" to 38-1/2" – providing you the capacity needed to turn table legs, baseball bats or other longer spindles. The extra weight adds to overall lathe stability, as well.

good quality
I blew it and assumed it would fit on my Wen 3424 and it wasn't right. I retrofit it but it is going to be a hassle. Nothing wrong with the product and for the right machine it will greatly improve turning wood.

Bed extension
I think this was a great addition to my lathe. Personally I wanted it for better elbow room when turning a bowl. It definitely accomplished that goal. I am glad I had help installing it since I had trouble getting it to line up without catching. Boy friends are handy to have around.

I read up on these months ago and had them on my own little wish list. I will be new to a lathe and from all I’ve read this is a good place to start. When I saw this come up on the cyber Monday sale, I knew it was the right time to go for it.
James B on Dec 2, 2019
Although I am a beginner, I thought the extension bed would provide me with more opportunities to learn the art of the lathe.

BEST ANSWER: This bed extension is designed for the Excelsior lathe. I do not know if it would fit on any other lathes.
will this fit my Harbor Freight 65345 10 X 18 mini wood lathe?
Robert R on Oct 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea whether that would fit your Harbor Freight wood lathe. I bought the Excelsior wood lathe and it works great on it but I wish I had bought the Jet for a bit more money. I can't find a duplicator to fit the Excelsior but they have one for the Jet. Be sure to research accessories on lathes, depending on what you want to do with it.

will this bed extension fit the Wen 3420 mini-lathe?
Lawrence on Dec 14, 2018
how long is the Extension?
A shopper on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is 21 3/4" from end to end on the bed. If you measure from feet bolt center on the original lathe to the feet bolt center on the extension it is 22". That is due to the milled recess that the extension rests in. That is how it measures on mine!
Will this fit the Harbor Freight/Central Machinery 8 In. X 10 In. 1/2 HP model 65345?
t m on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 65345 is a 10x18 lathe. If that is the one (65345) then the extension will work. I have put one on mine. It may require a little bit of relief but nothing major I would recommend it for anyone wanting to extend the length of the lathe. I was very happy with mine.
will this extension work on a central machinery model 65345 mini wood lathe?
Ducksway on Feb 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Not positive. I put it in my TCLPRO PSI bench top lathe and it fit almost perfectly. It seems that despite the brand, most of these style lathes are made identical except for color. I noticed that the HF central machinery lathe looks just like my PSI except for it is green. I took a chance on this item since PSI didn’t sell an extension for my specific lathe any longer and I got lucky.
What size are the bolts needed to make the connection?
Gerald W on Sep 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Do not recall. It came with the bolts . And fit my lathes female threads ( I have the harbor freight version that is identical except for paint)

Jim E on Jun 3, 2019

I am in need of a bed extension for a 10" x 18" Central Machine Wood Lathe?. I want to make canes and walking sticks for the members of our Church. I hope you can help me.....Keith Rankin
Benito on Dec 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have this extension and have used it many times to make Ash baseball bats. works great, just take your time securing it to the lathe for proper deck alignment.
i'm having a lot of trouble getting the Excelsior mini lathe extension bed to line up with the lathe bed so the tailstock will move easily across the joint. any suggestions on how to do this?
DAVID B on Oct 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Attach the lathe extension and snug the bolts, do not over tighten. Line up the extension about 1/16” high on the tail piece.
Using a small piece of a 2x4 and a light weight hammer, place the 2x4 at the connection and tap down until it becomes perfectly flush. Tighten the extension bolts. Repeat the process if necessary. Level the entire lathe upon completion.

Will this Excelsior bed extension fit on a Jet Mini Lathe, JML-1014?
David G on Jun 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: For some reason Rockler wants me to answer this question. I bought the extension but I have the Excelsior lathe, that’s why I bought it. I’d measure the bed on your Jet to see if it matches up. Good luck.
Distance between ways? Thickness of ways?
Mark B on Apr 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 1 1/4" or 32mm between ways and 9/16" or 14mm thick ways on the mini lathe mc-1018 extension--- Steve.
Will this extension fit the Grizzly T25920?
Hardy on Apr 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. BUT. I bought this for my Central Machinery lath and it fits perfect. I looked online at several companies and found this lath looks exactly like a lot of them, so I gave it a try figuring I could send it back if it did not fit. It did fit and I am very pleased with the purchase. The one from Grizzly looks just like my Harbor Freight model.
Where can I get a longer Excelsior Mini Lathe Replacement Belt say about tow or three times longer?
Kenneth C on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't understand the question. Why do you want a belt 2 to 3 times longer than the replacement belt? Are you going to change the location of the motor?
Does anyone make a duplicator for this lathe? I also have the bed extension for it.

BEST ANSWER: you should be looking for a duplicator that can handle a 10" swing. The one we sell is only for 12" to 16" swing. I would suggest a google search.
If you have ever read ShopNotes. I believe that last year they had and article on making your own duplicator.
Will this bed extension fit the Nova Comet 2?
Jim E on Jun 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I doubt it, there are several variables to consider, the bolt hole size and spacing, the slots in the bed may be different, and the height from the bench upon which the lathe is mounted may not be the same.
